    Jen is fabulous! Easy to work with and a great photographer!

    Jen is wonderful! From our first introductory call through photo delivery, Jen was incredibly easy to work with, accommodating, responsive, flexible, friendly, and most importantly, a great photographer! Jen took engagement photos for us and shot our small (26 person) wedding. Jen was really helpful with the planning process, she weighed in on location suggestions for our engagement shoot and advised on vendors for our wedding. When it came time for the engagement photos, a terrible wind storm was in the forecast. Jen was incredible flexible and happily rescheduled for a few days later. She even gave us her expert opinion about which day would be best after reviewing the forecast. On our wedding day, Jen went above and beyond the duties of a photographer (she helped bustle my dress, she helped talk to the venue staff to resolve minor issues, etc.). I am so glad Jen was by our side! We love the photos Jen took and are so happy Jen was the one to capture our memories on our special day!

    Amazing Photograher

    There are not many events more nerve-wracking than your wedding day, but the day will be gone in an instant. What remains are the memories and pictures of that glorious day. So, what you want is perfection in your photographs. Jen makes that happen. From the very beginning she made us feel comfortable. She listened, understood what we wanted, and we felt so confident that she would follow through with all our wishes. Day of, she made us so comfortable and at ease. She helped us relax and we knew we were in good hands. There鈥檚 just nothing like it when you hire a professional. She was everywhere at once and you hardly noticed her. How did she do that? I don鈥檛 know, but our photos are gorgeous. She cares about you and your happiness. She knows what works and makes it happen. She becomes part of your family. She considers us family for life. We are so grateful we hired Jen and you shouldn鈥檛 hesitate. Hire her NOW!

    Best photographer ever!

    I just had the absolute pleasure of working with Jen on my wedding. Being a wedding planner, I have worked with many, many photographers over the years, but when it came time to plan my own wedding, I knew immediately I wanted to work with Jen. I don't need to tell you that she's utterly talented. Her photos clearly show that. In fact there are many photographers that are extremely talented, so let me share with you what sets Jen apart from the other professional photographers in the area. First off, it's her personality. Jen is super organized, professional, kind and most importantly, fun! Your photographer is the vendor that you will spend the most time with on your wedding. You want to feel relaxed, calm and happy, otherwise it will show in your photos. Jen sets the tone, keeps things light and fun, all while capturing beautiful photos - both posed and candids. But what really sets Jen apart is the amount of detail and planning she does with you before the wedding day. To be totally honest, I wasn't looking forward to taking the various formal family photos before the wedding, but because Jen had a focused shot list and knew exactly what photos I wanted and who was expected to be in them, the process was so smooth and super quick. It was absolutely painless, in fact, it was fun! I have first hand witnessed the photographers who do not do the pre-planning that Jen does, and it's a mess on the wedding day. So much time is wasted looking for Aunt Sally or tracking down a groomsman to left to go to the bathroom when he was needed for photos etc. Jen's experience and organization keeps the process streamlined, leaving you more time to party with your guests. And of course your photos will be stunning as well! Thank you Jen! I feel so fortunate you were my wedding photographer!

    Jen Philips Photography's reply:

    Wow, Brooke! Thank you 100 times over for this wonderful review! I am so humbled by your words and was honored to have been the photographer you selected to spend this day with you. xo xo

    Jen is simply the best!

    Jen is incredible at what she does! We cannot recommend her enough. She is a consummate professional and incredibly responsive, adaptive, calm, and amazing to work with. We worked with Jen for our engagement photo shoot (which was postponed countless times due to the pandemic) and our rehearsal dinner and wedding (which was also postponed). Throughout the entire process (nearly 2 years of planning) she worked to understand and realize our photography vision. We can't wait to work with her again. All of her photography is beautiful but we are particular fans of her black & whites and how she can capture the magic and vibe of your special day with ease.

    Wonderful experience & gorgeous photos!

    We worked with Jen and her associate Jenna for our wedding and had an excellent experience. Jen was very involved throughout the entire process and Jenna was our day of photographer. Both of them were so easy and nice to work with! Very professional and smooth process. Jen puts a special touch on everything and goes the extra mile. She has a great process to order an album and is very patient and helpful in getting through all of the details. Our photos are magic and we had a great experience! Highly recommend.

    Amazing wedding photographer!

    Jen is an incredible photographer, and we are SO happy we had her for our wedding! She was very prompt and helpful in all communications during the planning process. Due to covid, we postponed our wedding and then had to change the venue. She was so flexible and kind amidst all of these changes! The day of the wedding, she arrived right on time. I normally feel so awkward getting my picture taken, but I felt totally at ease with Jen. Our pictures turned out even better than I could have imagined! The posed photos are of course beautiful, but she also captured some candid moments so perfectly! We received a preview of 75 photos one week after the wedding, and the full online gallery 3 weeks after. We could not be happier with the experience we had Jen and give her our highest recommendation!

    Jen Philips Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Annie! You two are the sweetest couple and were so easy to photograph. It was truly an honor to be a part of capturing your wedding day. xo xo

    A vendor you cn trust!

    My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jen for our September wedding in Sonoma. We spoke with several different photographers, and ultimately we felt as though Jen's body of work and personality was the best fit. Her prices, while not cheap, were competitive and within the range of what we planned in our wedding budget. She was friendly, willing to answer our numerous questions, and really flexible with creating packages that suited our photography needs.

    The package we ended up going with included an engagement shoot, and full wedding day coverage with a second shooter. We also firmed up pricing for wedding albums. Jen was super accommodating and flexible on the day of our engagement shoot. She really made us feel at ease, and took the time to get to know us. On our wedding day, Jen and her associate Kendal, showed up on time and were totally delightful and professional. They had it all down like clockwork. From our details shots, to getting ready, and of course all of our special moments during the ceremony and reception. We LOVE our engagement shoot and wedding day photos - we've framed them up everywhere in our home!

    I think any couple who has ever been through the wedding planning process know that the process can be anxiety-inducing if your wedding vendors aren't in the loop. Before, during, and after our wedding day, Jen was extremely communicative and reliable. She was in touch with our coordinator and other wedding vendors, and even did a walkthrough of our venue with us beforehand so we could choose out special spots for our first look and portraits. After the delivery of our images, she worked with us to correct any minor details to ensure that all of our images were delivered to our liking. Once all was said and done, Jen also worked with us to design a wedding album in time to gift to our families for the holidays.

    If you like what you see on Jen's website and social media pages, you will not be disappointed with what you get if you book with her!

    A final minor detail: it seems the assumption in the wedding industry is that the males care less about the wedding planning and details, despite being an equal half in the upcoming union. While this may be true in most cases, I personally found this a little frustrating as we were both contributing in different ways in the planning process. I SO appreciated that Jen was one of the few vendors that addressed both me and my husband in practically all of her communications.

    Incredible Talent

    Jen was incredible to work with. She took the time to get to know us learn what we wanted to have for our pictures and here skill in capturing the images was incredible. My only regret is that I didn't hire her for the entire weekend to get more pictures. Thank You Jen for capturing our wedding day so perfectly and for the incredible moments you captured for us!

    Would hire Jen three times over - oh wait, I did

    I originally found Jen based off her stellar reviews and hired her to do an engagement photo shoot in Napa as we searched for our future wedding venue. True to form, her lifestyle photography vibe gave us the exact look we were going for in our pictures: natural, candid and captured real moments, not poses. We ended up finding our wedding coordinator and venue later that week based off Jen's recommendation and industry relationships. Naturally, I wanted Jen to be our wedding photographer and we also did a boudoir shoot. She is highly organized and professional, and her warm and friendly nature will put anyone at ease. I am obsessed with my wedding pictures and loved working with Jen throughout the entire process. She learned our style and what was important to us, and captured the perfect moments forever! Thank you, Jen!

    My wife and I decided on a private wedding ceremony as both of us do not like being the center of attention. So we decided to go to Napa. Just the two us. And while we wanted the private ceremony, we also wanted the cake, the champagne, and some pictures so that we could document the special day. We booked a package through a local Napa B&B. The package included everything but the hair and make up. Unfortunately, the package also included a photographer that had a portfolio that seemed to be amateur. This was going to be our special day so we wanted a high quality photographer. The weeding coordinator provided us a few alternatives, and one of those was Jen Philips. We were impressed by her portfolio. Both the quality of the photographs (focus, light and sharpness) and also the style (the natural poses, the background used, etc).

    After agreeing on the one hour session and what was included in the fee, we shared with her a few special requests and filled out a questionnaire on her website. Since we were doing just a one hour session we knew our time with Jen would be limited. Jen arrived to the B&B on time and prior to the ceremony walked the property with my wife to identify the best places for pictures, including moving the standard spot for the ceremony in order to get the best pictures; the standard spot would have resulted in some shadows in the pictures. We definitely appreciated that she shared that information. After the ceremony we took pictures with some banners we brought with us, pictures in a couple of other spots on the property and the obligatory cake cutting pictures. She also took some cute pictures of our rings. Jen also brought more than one camera in order to use the best camera/lens combination for the photos.

    Jen did a great job with our wedding! She was very responsive to our needs before the wedding and getting it right for the wedding. She was flexible about the time spent and working with my budget. This is our second marriage with kids on both sides and all sorts of family. She graceful got all the groups together and made it work. Her upbeat attitude also helped make us feel special and the day just Rock!. After she was able to fix my hair issues, my son's acne and so many things I did not think possible.

    Jen is the whole package: extraordinarily talented as a photographer, professional, friendly, and enthusiastic at every turn, and able to put her subjects at ease while capturing moments that are effused with beauty and emotion. We were lucky enough to have her for our elopement/intimate wedding at the Carneros Resort and we could not have been happier! Before our wedding, she took the time to really understand what was important to us and she was very organized while shooting, making sure she got all the shots we were looking for. We loved just about every single photo we received, and there were hundreds for just the two-hour period that we had her.

    We should also mention that her digital platform was impressive and very user-friendly; it seamlessly integrated her gallery, event set up (questionnaire, payment, etc.) and photo delivery.

    Your wedding photography is probably one of the most important investments...in the years to come, it will be the single thing that helps you reconnect with all of the meaningful moments from your big day. Thank you so much Jen - we will cherish every moment you captured for us!
